It has to do with love and death and the deepest feelings of young women - in particular, black young women" (New Yorker) 'spell# 7' "Shange's sinewy, erotic, insistent poetry snakes through this play - a powerful an dpassionate evocation of black culture suppressed, or just plain ignored" (Time Out), The Love Space Demands: "Focusing on the experiences of black women but drawing on an awesome range of cross-cultural references, her words ooze with earthy sensuality...a remarkable, lyrical experience of live poetry" (Independent)."Shange's language is pure gold" (City Limits)
